Weight Watchers Wash-Out

I'm a graduate student at The Ohio State University. After being diagnosed 5 years ago with MS I gained a lot of weight. Once I got onto a stable medication regimen I started to lose weight naturally, but losing the last 20-30 lbs has been hard. I was a weight watchers member for almost two years, and had lost 23 pounds. I was only 8 pounds away from my ideal goal, but when the plan switched to "Points Plus" I started regaining weight and found myself having trouble sticking to plan. So, I left ...

The last couple of months have been very stress filled and I've gained some of my weight back. Joining SparkPeople is my way of getting back onto the old version of Weight Watchers and finding motivation through daily tracking and connections through SparkTeams.

Hi Slim_Sam!
I just wanted to encourage you in your Spark People endeavours! I was also dx with MS 3 years ago and I find it's hard to lose weight with taking steroids for relapses and medication. But the important thing is to start. So much uncertainties with MS is the future but God is so faithful! Keep your chin up!
An Ohio friend,
